Sarah Lahbati 'wanted'

Sarah Lahbati, who’s currently in Switzerland, might land in jail once she goes back to the Philippines.

The Makati City Prosecutor’s Office recently recommended filing a libel case against the Kapuso star. This, after she accused GMA Films President Annette Gozon-Abrogar of questionable talent management deals via micro-blogging site Twitter late last year.

In an interview with  Startalk on June 1, Abrogar’s counsel Atty. Gener Asuncion said  the court found probable cause upon investigating the case.
 
This  compelled the Makati Regional Trial Court to issue a warrant of arrest against Lahbati.

Assistant City Prosecutor Torres Peña, meanwhile, pointed out that Sarah failed to present evidence to show  that her ‘malicious’  tweets were made in good faith.

Only in the Philippines

Atty. Asuncion clarified that the arrest can only be enforced  in the Philippines.

In an earlier statement sent to Yahoo! Philippines OMG!, GMA Network said that the court recommended the filing of libel against Lahbati: “The Office of the City Prosecutor of Makati handed down a resolution recommending  that  Lahbati be criminally charged under the Revised Penal Code for libel.”

Richard Gutierrez’s girlfriend has gone AWOL when she made a self-imposed vacation in Switzerland. Lahbati has an active contract with the network.

Atty. Asuncion clarified that the trial won’t push through until the warrant is served.  

“Advice for Sarah, to face the court and face the charges against her. Let her rebut the accusation of Atty. Abrogar,” he added.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician.

In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
